If you are serious about winning your fantasy league football championship, stay on top of your fantasy football team throughout the year.

Each week during the NFL fantasy football season, KFFL brings you its Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, which breaks down players to pick up. Be aggressive when picking up fantasy football free agents. Even if you do not need a player, you can tuck him away for depth or block others from adding him to their fantasy football team.

Fantasy football free agents: Look to acquire

The following players will have greater significance in deep fantasy football leagues. In shallow fantasy football leagues, they are not as high of a priority but should be considered based on your fantasy football team's needs.

Kai Forbath, Washington Redskins (97 percent)

Dallas Cowboys PK Dan Bailey
Bailey's boot heating up

We said if Forbath could stabilize the kicking situation in D.C. that the rookie would have some value. Well, so far, so good. Through two weeks Forbath has converted all four of his field goal attempts and has totaled 19 points. He's still relatively unproven, but he has solid upside.

Dan Bailey, Dallas Cowboys (60 percent)

After a sluggish start, Bailey has now reached double figures in three of his last four games, including a season-high 13 in Week 7. With Dallas' offense showing signs of life, the second-year kicker could be worth adding.

Fantasy football free agents: One-week plays

The following fantasy football pickups are for those who need injury or bye week replacements. They are not players you immediately acquire - unless your team is in dire straits. Some have, however, shown some life and should be followed in case they materialize as options beyond their temporary use.

NEW - Ryan Succop, Kansas City Chiefs (95 percent)

Take away Succop's 19-point performance in Week 3 and the fourth-year kicker has averaged a measly 4.6 points per game this year. On the other side, no one has allowed a higher scoring average by opposing kickers over the past four weeks than the Oakland Raiders (11.7). Something has to give, and I'm not talking about the national interest level in this matchup.
